Say what you want about Peyton Manning in regards to his legacy and place in history, but he’s one of the all-time greats and will go down in infamy as such.
Richard Sherman didn’t utter anything close to an insult towards Manning this week, and moments like last night are why. After suffering through what could be his lowest moment as a pro, Manning was only really concerned about Sherman’s health after the all pro left the game with an ankle injury.
“He was really concerned about my well-being,” Sherman said. “After a game like that, a guy who’s still classy enough to say ‘How are you doing?’ To show that kind of concern for an opponent shows a lot of humility and class.”
Sherman said that despite Manning’s bad game, the Seahawks continue to have a great deal of respect for him.
“He’s a Hall of Fame player, he’s a living legend, he’s a record-holding quarterback, he’s a Super Bowl champion, he’s been a Super Bowl MVP,” Sherman said of Manning.
“Peyton is the Classiest person/player I have ever met! I could learn so much from him! Thank you for being a great Competitor and person,”
